“Stunning -- Your portrait of Cash speaks for itself - when I came back home last evening I was taken aback by the vivid image and felt as if Cashew was staring right at me.  I think that even a total stranger would see the warmth of her spirit and the wisdom in her soul through those eyes - you really captured her!”

--Amy Tate, Dog Portrait Client


“Your photos are magnificent. I sense a life and spirit in these portraits—they breathe through the screen.”

“You capture the essence of the beings you photograph.  Some people take take Emotographs.

“Perhaps it is Lori's intimate understanding of dogs - but her photographs capture the spirit of the animals she works with.  Dogs who might shy away from others, seem to understand Lori's sensitivity to them, and so they show themselves to her camera with abandon. Lori does not pose the dog, or ask them to "sit" or "stay" or "look this way" or "that" - Lori catches them being themselves, and they trust her.”

“Wow. I just came from your website. Your work leaves me without words. I saw the butterflies and the flowers first and you truly ‘capture’ the beauty and essence and soul intrinsic to each subject. Then I saw the dogs. Wow again. I think it takes someone with a lot of love to create works that portray so much love. You made my day.”
